Best Actress 1939

Now I take a look at 1939 Best Actress

Oscar Nominees (My Ranking):
1. Vivien Leigh - Gone with The Wind

2. Bette Davis - Dark Victory

3. Greta Garbo - Ninotchka

4. Greer Garson - Goodbye Mr Chips

5. Irene Dunne - Love Affair

This is the best year for Actress ever. All 5 are deserving nominees and would all be deserving winners too, but Vivien Leigh gives something extra in the role as Scarlett O'Hara.

If i got to choose I would include some other great actresses this year. Judy Garland in "The Wizard of Oz", though not her best performance it's her most memorable (Notice she won a Juvenille Award the same year). We also have some other memorable performances by Bette Davis in "The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex" and to lesser degree "Juarez" and "The Old Maid". Then we have all the women from "The Women", with Norma Sherar as the highlight of the cast. There's also Merle Oberon in the best picture nominated "Wuthering Heights" and a breakthrough role for Ingrid Bergman in "Intermezzo: A Love Story". There's Also Barbara Stanwyck for either "Golden Boy" and "Union Pacific"

Who's your favourite of the nominees and what is your ballot sounding like?
